Hemina – High Kite Ride – Audio

The Australian progressive-metal quartet Hemina release the LP Venus on the 11th of November.



The just over eighty minute eleven track + one bonus album (available on bandcamp), needs to be approached with plenty of time to spare as to be in a hurry will only bring frustration as the quartet are in no rush to reach the finishing line within the extended tracks, some of which run to over ten minutes, whilst, in right frame of mind this is a release that successfully takes the listener on a far reaching journey to be savoured.

The third composition, running at a tad over nine minutes, High Kite Ride, is one of the faster tempo pieces on the release with its roots firmly set in metal from which they expand the themes to a glittering parade of extended guitar phraseology with sympathetic synths providing a subtle backwash.
